Heather Boatman, Vice President Organizational and Learning Development at Burlington Coat Factory
Learning and even leadership development doesn’t always find champions in the
boardroom, but for organizational leaders that choose to make it a priority, the benefits continue to be outstanding. Organizations aligned with learning consistently deliver higher employee engagement scores, lower turnover rates, and more satisfied workers — all of which leads to better business outcomes and profits. Yet many learning and even more development initiatives fail without executive support. What can learning and development leaders do to stress the importance and return on their initiatives? How can they create a champion for L&D in the c-level suite?
This session is designed to give you the tools, language, and resources you need to
adequately navigate the path to senior leadership buy-in. Learn what senior leaders
are most looking for when it comes to make strategic L&D decisions and find ways to demonstrate the strength and ROI of leadership development and learning.
You will learn:
• How to build a strategy to get initial support from change agents and key personnel
• How to determine a step-by-step guide to measure and present the rationale for learning and leadership development initiatives
• The key three elements you must have in order to drive senior leadership buy-in
